January 31 (SeeNews) - Romanian investing platform for tech startups SeedBlink said that it has partnered with Goldring, one of the country’s most active brokers in terms of listings on the Bucharest Stock Exchange, to develop financial investment services, diversify investment offerings and facilitate access to capital.
The partnership aims to increase visibility within the Goldring investor community for tech startups eyeing international expansion that are raising funds through SeedBlink, the investing platform said in a press release on Monday.
